"This 'On the Magnet' is a new improved English translation of the widely censored or banned Latin 1600 'De Magnete' by William Gilbert which was the first real science book to be published. This version is rather easier to read than its two earlier translations, and significantly helps to clarify Gilbert's 'attraction' physics which Newton put as one of two basic valid mathematized physics options and which he is believed to have privately favoured. It is basically a novel signal-response or remote-control physics that may still have real relevance today."
